Medical City Las Colinas March 10, 2016

IRVING, Texas (March 10, 2016) Medical City Las Colinas is pleased to announce Assistant Chief Nurse Officer, Kimberley Petty, and Clinical Educator, Bea Ngo Bisombi, have both received recognition as one of DFW’s “The Great 100 Nurses.”

Petty’s diverse background spans the gamut of critical care, quality management, infection control, nursing informatics, education, and most recently as Assistant Chief Nursing Officer.

“Nursing is my passion. I cannot explain the satisfaction that comes from being a nurse and guiding healthcare practices that improve the lives of our patients,” said Kimberley Petty, 2016 award recipient. “I am fortunate to be a leader at Medical City Las Colinas with such a fabulous nursing team who delivers such high quality compassionate care.”

Ngo Bisombi’s passion for patients and love of teaching allows this exceptional critical care educator to create an environment that nurtures and supports learning for staff and healing for patients.

“I love being an educator because it allows me to touch so many lives. Every bedside nurse that I train through evidence based practice allows me to affect every patient outcome” said Bea Ngo Bisombi. “Medical City Las Colinas strives to deliver the highest standard of care for the communities we serve. ”

“These two nurses embody everything ‘The Great 100 Nurses’ program stands for both on the job and off,” said Trey Caraway, Chief Nursing Officer of Medical City Las Colinas. “They demonstrate “Excellence Always” in every way and consistently every day. They are both richly deserving of this recognition and I am very proud of them.”

“The Great 100 Nurses” event recognizes RNs for excellence in the art and science of nursing. Nurses were nominated by peers and selected because they are role models, leaders, community servants, compassionate caregivers and significant contributors to the nursing profession. Honorees come from all practice areas in nursing, including acute care, sub-acute care, school nursing, nurse leaders, academics and more.

Kimberley Petty and Bea Ngo Bisombi will be recognized during the 2016 DFW Great 100 Nurses Celebration on May 3, 2016 at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center.
